  1. Change default "Home" screen in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

    When using Adobe Acrobat Pro for scanning documents every 10 minutes, I need to have a "Home" screen with only one button - "Create PDF" + "From Scanner" + "Grayscale Document (front side)".

    The new setting is driving me crazy. I wish I could downgrade to the old Adobe Acrobat design!

  4. Allow One Button Scanning

    Please create a shortcut that would allow the creation of a scanned document. Too many clicks to create pdf from scan. Your attitude seems to be the more clicks the better.

  7. Improved text scanning

    Preprocess text scans by determining the fix width used for spaces recognizing that the gaps between words can be integral spaces. Use that information to bound the locations containing characters within a box which have no room for one or more space between them.

    During later text scanning make the presumption that the box contains text only and no spaces so that "2012" is not scanned as two fields such as "20 " and "12 " or as "20 I " and "2". Recognition of space wideth can also be used to determine with greater accuracy when some blob is…

  8. Improved scanning process.

    Preprocces to recognize features of forms such as boxes with or without checks and the boxes around fields.

    I scan image documents to be able to search for technical reviews or to export them to excel, access, or word. Current situation: On forms empty or full check boxes are frequently recognized as text and the text is wrong and takes a long time to correct. The same occurs with text near boundaries around form fields. If form type features such as check boxes and field boundaries can be recognized by a scanning algorithm very different from the small box scan…

    Hi,
    We need some information to understand and resolve this issue:
    - Acrobat version
    - Scanner details
    - Scan settings
    - Number of pages scan
    - Does it happen for small files also or only for these bulk scanned files.

    Thanks.

  13. Make field wider for correcting scanned text

    When viewing and correcting scanned text, the field is so small as to not include the whole word. Also, it would be much easier to just retype the correct text directly in the document

  16. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Crashing

    When I open up a document on my Macbook which has been scanned in using Adobe Scan (on my phone) then Adobe crashes. Mostly it does this before I can save the files to local disk. Once on local disk, it opens them OK.

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting your concern.
    As of now, Adobe scan app is not implemented for Windows. We will update you if its done in near future.
    Thanks.

  18. I used to be able to clean up my scanned documents by clicking the "spots" and deleting. Now I am unable to do this.

    I was able to do this in the past. The most recent update must have removed the ability. I would select the "spot" or the edge of the page where the document feeder skewed the page in the scanner, then hit delete. Now I am unable to do this. I want to be able to present clean documents.

    If I am not wrong you are using edit functionality of Acrobat. There you can select the edge or small bounding ox and delete it if it is not required.
    If not please use Edit tool.

    If you are facing any issue on any file please share the files.

    Thanks.

  19. Machine Learning Form Analysis

    After OCR recognition provide a facility not just for correcting the text, but for meta-data labeling of fields and regions. This data would make machine-learned document management much more effective.
    For example, the automated extraction of data from Insurance company EOBs. You might argue, of course, that this is not in Adobe's balliwick, but I'd argue that this is a natural addition to your commenting tools.
